She announced the news earlier with a surprise one-minute trailer for the visual album - which has also been seen as a film - on her website in June, giving her audience an initial look at the Lion King-inspired release.

The Grammy victor, 38, included a special shout-out in the Friday, July 31, Disney+ special to her son, 2.

Black Is King debuted on Disney+ this morning and viewers noticed Beyonce's kids - Blue Ivy, Rumi, and Sir - first. "And to all our sons and daughters, the sun and the moon sow for you".

Maxwell's attorneys tried to stop the documents from surfacing and asked a US district court judge to intervene with a phone call. Of all Epstein's victims, it's the allegations of Virginia Roberts Giuffre that has had the most fall out around the world.

According to Disney+, The album reimagines the lessons from the movie for "today's young kings and queens in search of their own crowns", and is a "celebratory memoir for the world on the black experience". "The film is a story for the ages that informs and rebuilds the present".

It may have been almost impossible to top the cinematography of "Lemonade" (2016) and "Homecoming" (2018), but the singer has matched - if not surpassed - them with "Black Is King". "A story of how the people left most broken have an extraordinary gift and a purposeful future".

In the lead up to the release, Beyoncé shared the music video for the album's track Already, a collaboration with Ghanian artist Shatta Wale and Major Lazer. In addition to several high-profile guests like Pharell and Lupita Nyong'o, the album also features Beyonce's family. "But Black Is King means Black is regal and rich in history in objective and in lineage". Rumi appears in the "Brown Skin Girl" video and Sir just makes the appearance in the dedication, but Blue can be seen throughout the film.
